ROLEPLAY REVIEW: Life's Lottery - Kim Newman

Release Date: 25/04/14
Publisher:  Titan


This is a role-playing novel that reveals how small decisions can have monumental consequences. If you choose the right possibilities you may live a long happy life, or be immensely rich, or powerful, or win the lottery. If you make other choices you may become a murderer, die young, make every mistake possible, or make no impression on life at all. The choice is yours.


This is something completely different to any other book out there and whilst the idea is relatively simple, the reader gets to explore a world of choices (that they make like the old fashioned roleplay book) to see how simple things can affect the outcome of the “players” life. Its definitely something that’s unique and whilst it didn’t quite work for me, it was something that is not only a brave attempt but something that was more than worth the time I spent with it. All round a solid enough book and one that gets a higher rating because of the novelty within.
